A hydroponic greenhouse for East Garfield Park

by Joe Zekas on 12/12/13

Real estate developers never lack for imagination, or the restless energy and skills necessary to translate dreams into physical reality.

LG Development’s Barry Howard has a dream: transform some forlorn parcels in East Garfield Park into a hydroponic greenhouse that will supply fresh produce throughout the year to a community where it’s in short supply, and team with a local nonprofit to employ veterans who need jobs.

Join Barry in the video for a look at the site on a cold and windy day, and learn how you can help build the dream.
